Biography

American race car driver whose career in the NASCAR Grand National Series spanned from 1964 to 1966.

Derrington had a 80-race winless streak during his NASCAR career. Finishing an average of 15th place, he managed to qualify in 20th place during an average qualifying session; making his finishes better on average than his starts.

Derrington was caught by NASCAR officials for having a 23-gallon tank in his vehicle instead of the mandated 22-gallon tank. His vehicle had to go to a nearby welding shop to make the fuel tank conform to the NASCAR standards at that time.

He died on 14 October 2011, aged 80.
